FAIRFIELD — Baseball, bad guys and a haunted abode are the focus of the movies opening nationwide Friday.

Clint Eastwood stars in the PG-13 “Trouble with the Curve” about an aging baseball scout sent to check out the country’s hottest batting prospect. Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman are featured.

“Dredd,” rated R, is a look into the future of America, this time as an irradiated wasteland where there’s one mega city on the East Coast and the only order of force lies with urban cops who give themselves the power of judge, jury and executioner. It’s also being shown in 3D.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in “End of Watch,” a tale of two young police officers whose beat is the meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. It’s rated R.

“House at the End of the Street” focuses on a newly divorced mom and her daughter who find the house of their dreams, only to discover a grisly crime took place at the house next door. Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Shue star in the PG-13 flick.

Opening in limited release are:

  • The film “17 Girls,”about a group of 17 teenage schoolmates who become pregnant at the same time. The film is not rated.
  • “About Cherry,” a drama that stars James Franco and Heather Graham, focuses an 18-year-old girl who hopes to make money in the pornography industry. It’s not rated.
  • “Backwards,” rated PG, centers on a young woman who spent most of her life trying to win and Olympic gold medal in rowing. Then, when she’s named to the Olympic team as an alternate, she quits in haste. She ends up teaching rowing at her alma mater, where her former boyfriend is now the head of the athletic department. James Van Der Beek stars.
  • “The Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best,” not rated, is a musical comedy about two bandmates who give new meaning to the term “lo-fi,” playing children’s instruments. It’s not rated.
  • The “Empress of Fashion” is the subject of “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.” The PG-13 documentary offers an intimate look at one of the most influential women of the 20th century.
  • “Head Games” is based on the book of the same name and examines the question, “How much of you are you willing to lose for a game?” It’s rated PG-13.
  • “How to Survive a Plague” is an AIDS-related documentary by David France that focuses on Act-Up.
  • “My Uncle Rafael,” rated PG-13, follows a dysfunctional family cast in a reality show.
  • “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” starring Emma Watson, is a story of the highs and crushing lows of growing up. It’s rated PG-13.
  • “Unconditional,” PG-13, centers on a woman who is living an idyllic life until her husband is killed in a senseless act of violence.
  • “You May Not Kiss the Bride,” PG-13, centers on the budding romance of a pet photographer and Croatian mobster’s daughter. Katharine McPhee and David Annable star.
